A Google project, titled Project Glass, is gearing up at a good pace, which aims at creating the Google Glass – a super glass that includes augmented reality technology. You might have witnessed such glasses only in the Sci – Fi movies, which have some stunning features and enable superhuman vision. The search engine giant launched the project, Project Glass, a couple of weeks ago and even went on to create a page for it in its social networking site, Google Plus.
Why Project Glass?
According the sources from Google, the new Google project is about to serve every digital purpose of the mankind. May it be for communication, may it be for taking pictures, may it be for capturing the motion or may it be for accessing the internet and sharing the content, Google says that a Google glass will be enough in the future to do all the necessary stuff. Although the concept appears to be very futuristic, the recent advancements made by the Google engineers in the Google Project is enough to give a great hope that soon the dream would turn into a reality!
How This Stuff Works?
Everyone’s imagination goes wild like wearing a stylish pair of glasses, which is full – furnished with all the digital stuff, when we talk about the Google glasses. However, according to the pictures released by Google, which reveals the first look of the futuristic glasses, Google’s eyewear does not really come up with any lens. Instead, a very less known technology called Augmented Reality will help the wearer to carry out all the necessary things. Augmented Reality is a concept which a common man can witness only in the sci – fi movies. So, what really is Augmented Reality and how it is going to help the Google Project?
To make it simple to a common man, Augmented Reality is a technology that enables a human being to view a live real world environment which augments elements of computer generated sensory input such as sound, video, image, data and so on. The goal of this technology is to improve the user’s perception of the real world. The Google Project sensibly uses this awesome technology to project augmented reality elements into the glass wearer’s field of vision. This projection simply helps the wearer to get everything just with his eyesight. For an instance, with the Google eyewear, one can wake up and open his eye to know about the day’s weather, trending news, appointments and to – do lists for the day and so on.
Project is gearing up!
After the first look of the project glass created ripples in the internet world, a day ago, a Google engineer came up with a snapshot of his son captured with the help of his Google glass. He posted this picture in his Google Plus page, which later became viral, and so far, has garnered more than 2000 +1 votes and hundreds of shares. Even Google’s cofounder Sergey Brin reposted the picture with the caption ‘an amazing capture’. The snapshot does not have a high definition quality, but surely seems to create a new trend in photography, which the experts term it as the ‘first person photography’. Google has already simplified the lives of many with its services and products, if the Google Project turns out into a reality, it will further enhance the way people live their life!
